Synopsis

The Chinese Brush Painting Sourcebook Over 200 Exquisite Motifs to Recreate with Step-by-step Instructions by Jane Dwight

Chinese brush painting uses a minimum of strokes to describe the essence of a subject and capture its rhythm and beauty. This book contains more than 200 exquisite motifs to recreate, from pretty flowers and butterflies to wildlife and scenery. Each motif includes an explanation of its symbolic meaning, a palette of colours, and step-by-step instructions in the order, direction, and type of brushstrokes. An introductory section explains all tools, techniques and materials, from choosing ink and paper to achieving the perfect colour and consistency of paint. The book is also packed with advice on composing and combining images to create perfectly balanced, harmonious paintings, and ideas for using and displaying your finished art.
